. >> this is where a strong party chairman comes in and is tough on this. you'll remember back when michigan and florida tried to jump ahead in our primary season and according to the rules, everyone voted on in the democratic party voted on, that they would lose their delegates. now, someone has got to -- for this not to be a train wreck, a strong party chairman has to say if you move, there will be punishment for it. this is chaos on their side. believe me, i always root for chaos on their side. but this is chaos on their side. to one other point about what eric said. i. is an important state. it is an important state for organizing and getting in. if barack obama had not done well in iowa, he may not very well be president right now. it catapulted him. >> another reason to discount the iowa caucus. the republican convention is in florida. so they're going to have a hard time disqualifying florida delegates to the convention held in florida if they want to show up and not have the doors barred at the convention center. >> you never know. they might close the bars early and we couldn't have

brainwash has the connotation of what mitt romney's father said in michigan some 40 or 50 years ago. 40 years ago. i think that's why it also raised alarms. but clearly there are blocs in this country who vote the way they do. that's been a historical pattern up and down every demographic strat ta you can divide the electorate over. that's part of america. always has been. >> cornell? >> if you say that, that's fine. but when you say that people are brainwashed a certain racial group is for doing that, that's the problem. >> interesting discussion. cornell, appreciate it. >> but it's not racist. >> it's bigoted. if someone is making bigoted statements, i have no problem calling them a racist or a bigot. >> that's why a lot of people stay out of politics, anderson, because one word and then somebody's accusing you of being a racist. programming note, we're announcing the arizona republican party and cnn will co-host a gop presidential debate december 1st in arizona, october 18th in it las vegas, 8:00 p.m. eastern right here on cnn. let's see if herman cain gets questions on that. >>> sti

michigan, across the midwest and in the south? >> well, the same things were asked of the republicans when we won a special election in one of the most republican districts in the united states in upstate new york, look, the fact of the matter is that they stole one from us in downstate new york and it's not the end of the world for us just as we stole one from them in upstate new york and it wasn't the end of the world for them. special elections are not predictive, john. let me give you one statistic in 2006 we lost every single competitive special election and democrats won the house of representatives. in 2010, we won every single competitive special election and we lost control of the house of the representatives. they are moments in time. they are not predictive of trends. >> you don't think this means anything, then, just one loss even though democrats have held this seat for 90 years? >> look, it was a tough loss. you know, i wish we had won. i'm not going to minimize it. i'm not going to sugarcoat it -- >> but what happened? >> it was a loss based on a confluence of events, a perf
